1) Well she certainly can't F'n write better songs

2) and apparantly she can't produce or pick better producers either as she had Paul bail her out of her solo album

Who's to say? Maybe it's more of a picnic for her to be married to him than for him to be married to her. And another thing to consider, could it be that that maybe they-love-each-other-lord-you-can-see-that-it's-true?

I don't care one way or another, but after hearing from various people in the "biz" about Paul Simon's dealings with others (see Los Lobos' take - http://www.jambase.com/headsup.asp?storyID=9391) there's little doubt he's an asshole. Again, not a comment on his music, but him.

Straight from the horse's-er, uh-wolf's mouth. Hell of a story and by the minute detail of his recollections, it seems clear from this end that it's a very credible account of what went down. And speaking of credibility, it calls into question the validity of anything Simon ever released that lists his name as songwriter.

What goes around, comes around:
Simon's lone foray into musical theatre on Broadway, Capeman, lionized the exploits of Salvador Agron, who was convicted, circa 1960, for fatally stabbing a couple of fellow teenagers mistakenly assumed to be members of a rival New York City street gang, but who were actually just innocent bystanders in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Capeman opened, Simon, apparently suffering from SHS (Swollen Head Syndrome), thought he could do no wrong in the wake of the enormous critical and commercial triumph that was, as I just learned, the purloined work (at least partially, according to Berlin) titled Graceland. Not the chartbuster that Graceland was, its follw-up, Rhythm of the Saints, was still able to attain significant sales and reaffirm his status as a darling of the critics. Apparently convinced of his own invincibility, Simon focused all of his efforts into conquering The Great White Way with Capeman. In retrospect, it's clear what an idiotic concept the show was, but even at the time of the show's considerably short run of performances, response to it was lukewarm at best. Surviving relatives of the boys that Agron murdered were outraged that such a travesty ever made it to Broadway at all. It closed after a total of 59 previews and only 68 regular performances. At a cost of $11 Million to produce, it is remembered as one of the most notorious flops of modern Broadway history. Instead of adding another financial hit to his assets, Simon took a major hit to what had been a measurably formidable stance of popularity and marketability. Although the occasional reunion appearances with Garfunkel bring out the fans in big numbers, not to mention touring in recent years with Bob Dylan, the aftermath of the Capeman disaster fairly well designated Simon as a has-been, permanently marring his reputation and viability.

WOAH! Aint that some shit! Disappointing to say the least. Nothing but respect for Berlin though for not sugar coating it. If it were me I'd have no problem telling the world either.

So I now withdraw my other comment. Or maybe I should change it to he STEALS better songs than hers?
